Stepsiblings of emaciated boy stay under CPS care

Harris County Juvenile Judge Glenn Devlin decided that the agency should continue to have legal control over the children, who were in CPS emergency custody. A CPS caseworker said the agency requested conservatorship based on interviews in which at least three of Tami Bleimeyer's children reported that her actions contributed to the emaciated boy's condition. During questioning, Tami Bleimeyer admitted that her stepson was "skinny" but denied withholding food or making him live in a closet under her Spring home's stairwell - as her children have alleged. The youngster - who weighed just 29 pounds - was near death, according to members of his medical team who testified last week at his custody hearing.

I told the truth about entrepreneurism to a bunch of kids ? they can handle it

There?s a story about entrepreneurism that isn?t often told. It?s the one that doesn?t involve boy billionaires who get rich quick creating a product lauded worldwide. It?s the one where even when you?re successful few people outside your business community?s C-suite know your name. It?s the most common entrepreneurial story, and, therefore, few people tell it. But when the Rotary Club of Houston invited me to speak to 80 high school juniors from the Houston area at Camp Enterprise?

Talent: How to deal with workplace engagement

Employee engagement is often easier to sense than define, but it occurs when employees feel enabled and enthusiastic to contribute to their company?s success. Engaged employees focus on their professional futures and are aligned with their companies? objectives, so they are often more effective at applying their talents to achieve corporate business goals. Americans are among the most engaged workers in the world, yet less than 30 percent of US workers are fully engaged. Most are not entirely?

Luitwieler, Cinco Ranch bag 5A regional golf titles

MONT BELVIEU - With Cinco Ranch comfortably ahead in the Class Region III girls golf tournament, all that was left to be settled was the individual championship between the Cougars' Maddie Luitwieler and Kari Bush of Clear Lake. Cinco Ranch, which shot a final-round 312 and had a two-round total 619, beat runner-up Clements (627) by eight shots to advance to state for the fourth straight year. Seven Lakes (650), which improved by 22 shots in the final round, was the third team to qualify for the state tournament April 28-29 in Austin. Senior Kennedy Ishee of Cinco Ranch will be making her fourth appearance at the state tournament. Cinco Ranch, which won the girls 19-5A championships by 38 shots, led regionals by eight shots over Clements after the rain-delayed first round was completed Tuesday.

Friendswood, Montgomery on top in 4A regional golf

SEALY - Before Friendswood golf coach John Hext got on the bus to leave the course Tuesday, he was unsure if he was going to tell his players the magnitude of what was within reach. Friendswood sits in first place after the first round of the Class 4A Region III championships at River Ridge Golf Club. If the Mustangs hold on to one of the top three places after Wednesday's final round, they will be the first boys golf team in school history to qualify for state. "I don't think they know that," Hext said. "We've had individuals go, but we've never done it as a team. We're going to eat some dinner and go to Bass Pro Shops and try not to think too much about it.

Rockets glad to have Howard back for playoff run

NEW ORLEANS – The Rockets wanted and needed the win, and Dwight Howard was no different. But he needed more. Just as time was running out on the Rockets’ pursuit of homecourt advantage in the playoffs’ first round, he was down to his final days to return to post-season speed. His first game back, the Rockets’ strangely harrowing escape against the undermanned Pelicans, might have been enough for Howard to feel that his troublesome left ankle was ready to let him get back to work, but he knew how much work needed to be done. After two weeks out with a strained left ankle and the two procedures to drain [...]

Scouting report: Rockets at New Orleans Pelicans

Three things to watch for in the Rockets’ season finale against the Pelicans on Wednesday: 1. One more time: The Rockets had enough trouble with the Pelicans of Luke Babbitt and Alexis Ajinca on Saturday, the Pelicans could be much tougher in the season finale. They are 21-19 at home, are coming off an upset of the Oklahoma City Thunder to snap an eight-game losing streak, and unlike the game in Houston, have Tyreke Evans healthy and available. Evans scored 41 points, including a franchise record 32 in the second half, adding eight assists and nine rebounds in the win against the Thunder. 2. Meet your Vipers: With the Rockets [...]

Rockets reminded of dribble penetration value after rough shooting night

The Rockets 60 points in the paint against the Spurs overcame a poor 3-point shooting performance in which they made just 4-of-22 3s. But it also reminded the value of dribble penetration to break down the defense. “Even when we got in the paint and missed shots, our bigs were there to clean it up” Rockets guard Jeremy Lin said. “Those are kind of the plays we?ll live with. Some missed shots you have big guys come over to get blocked shots and you have put backs. That?s good offense for us.”

Starting five to take season finale off

The Rockets will likely give the bulk of their regulars a night off in the season-finale against the Pelicans on Wednesday night. They recalled rookies Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington from their NBA Development League Vipers on Tuesday, a day after they helped the Rio Grande Valley Vipers clinch their first-round playoff series. Troy Daniels had remained with the Rockets for Monday’s game and will also likely receive extensive playing time in the last regular-season game. Monday’s game, however, did allow the Rockets to have their starting lineup on the court for the first time since March 27, moving to 23-11 with their preferred lineup of Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, [...]
